If you use Charge When Ship functionality, funds are deposited into your Amazon payment account after you confirm shipment of an order, and they will be automatically disbursed to your bank account on the next scheduled disbursement date. Your settlement reports will still be generated using the same times and intervals as they are today.
Generally, Amazon Payments first settles your account 14 days after your first payment transaction completes. After the initial 14 day holding period, your account is settled daily.
For a settlement to take place, you must:
- Have a positive or zero account balance. Fees and customer refunds, if any, can affect your balance.
- Have entered valid information in Seller Central for your U.S.-based bank checking account. For more information, see Adding & Managing a Bank Account.
It usually takes 3 to 5 business days from the time we settle your account and initiate an ACH transfer before the funds arrive in your account.
